in jerusalem for us tonight, and rick the prime minister saying he will not wait for the united states to use force against iran and may not wait for the presidential election either. >> right, harris, the prime minister says he's not guided by the american political calendar, but by the the iranian nuclear calendar and he says israel has the right to defend itself against any threat and he says tehran is racing to build an atom bomb and that the u.s. needs to act with more urgency because time is running out and compares iran to the militants attacking u.s. embassies across the middle east, north africa and that iran puts it ahead of survival and suicide bombers, quote, all offer the place and says it will be a grave mistake not to stop that before it's too late. >> and you have the nuclear weapons, and you have countries that have access to nuclear weapons, and always made a careful calculation and cost and benefit, but iran is guided by a leadership that-- with an unbelievable fanaticism. the same fanaticism you see storm the embassy today. >> netanyahu insisting on a deadline for iran or
that work? >> well, youtube's operating under united states law, and there are very few situations where they areequired to take down content. we don't have hate speech laws. the only kind of hate speech that is illegal in the united states is when it insights imminent lawlessness, and i think google was correct that the video in question did not meet that standard, so they made a decision globally to leave that content up. that's the right decision. it's very, very difficult. we have -- youtube gets 72 hours of video uploaded a minute. we have thousands of tweets coming in a second. we can't expect these companies to be screening on the front end, and our law doesn't require them to do so. in fact, it protects them from liability. >> i know it doesn't require them and you sate's the right thing to leave it up but it did insight violence and the deaths of four americans. >> well, i don't know that we know it incited violence. we know that those videos were used at least pretexturally. it's a decision that every company has to make for themselves. that's how we've made our laws in the uni

. it's never too early for the united states government to condemn attacks on americans and to defend our values. i think it's a terrible course for america to stand in apology for our values, that instead when our grounds are being attacked and being breached, that the first response to the united states must be outrage at the breach of the sovereignty of our nation. >> well, there's no space between this kind of talk and what we heard from sarah palin in the campaign four years ago. catch her act. >> we've seen an america of exceptionalism. yes, usa! usa! our o poen is someone who sees america as imperfect enough to pow around with terrorists who targeted their own counted. >> well, this gets back to you, ron. we'll get back to cynthia, obviously. but it seems to me you've hit something here. instead of leading he's shrinking down into something smaller than he led the campaign as. i can be crazy too. i can talk like sarah palin. that seems to be the language it takes to win a republican constituency. it's sad to watch someone get smaller as the campaign goes on, reaching down to th
, bond purchases every month meant to give banks the ability to lend more to people in the united states. italy and spain, two big countries considered too big to fail in the ongoing eurozone crisis could get bailout funds going forward to bring down their borrowing costs. both are instances of central banks initiating action when the political will to act is lacking, whether in washington or in europe's capital. joining me now to debate the tactics is rich quest. richard, welcome. today's q and a question is are central banks saving the world or are they making things worse? i'll go first, richard. give me 60 seconds on the clock starting now. richard, central banks are doing the right thing by taking action to shore up our troubled economies, but it is only half the equation. there is a world financial crisis like the one we witnessed four years ago when lehman brothers collapse two things need to be done. number one, central banks need to step in with emergency fiscal moves. two, make smart political decisions and that is what's lacking in the united states and in europe's capitals. a
his distinguished career in the foreign service, he won friends to the united states in far-flung places. he made those people's hopes his own. during the revolution in libya, he risked his life to help protect the libyan people from a tyrant. he gave his life helping them build a better country. people loved to work with him. as he rose through the ranks, they loved to work forehand. he was known not only for his courage, but for his smile. goofy, but contagious. for his sense of fun and that california cool. in the days since the attack, so many libyans, including the ambassador, who is with us today, have expressed their sorrow and solidarity. one young woman, her head covered and her eyes haunted with sadness, held up a handwritten sign that said "thugs and killers do not represent a benghazi or islam." the president of the palestinian authority, who worked closely with chris sent me a letter of remembering his energy and integrity and deploring "an act of ugly terror." many others from across the middle east and africa have offered similar sentiments. this has been a di

of the states want to work with the united states. they have a small group inside the state that wants to use the united states to rally and raise their own cause and also to undercut the government. so the worst thing we could do is cut support to these governments. they need our help, they want our help. they want to modernize, they want to work with the united states. but we have to do is insist they fulfill their responsibilities to protect our sovereign territory in their countries. >> i want to talk to you about a story that we have been reporting. you've heard about the people who are dressed up in nato uniforms, going in and killing people, harming people. we'll do a story about a young man killed in afghanistan, working -- he said he didn't feel safe trusting the troops he was training -- training the people he was training to be police officer. can you talk about that? that say real problem, isn't it? >> it is a real problem. and i know our commanders in afghanistan are taking additional measures, like making sure our troops are armed, making sure there are sufficient numbers of tro

supply-side economists in the united states. mr. me, will -- moore, will you give us your opening statement? >> thank you, your honor. >> very good. >> thank you, members of the jury. i would like to start by saying i believe this trial is a farce and a miscarriage of justice. i work for "the wall street journal" so, of course, i'm going to defend wall street. i would submit and our defense, your honor, boils down to this: that it is the wrong people and the wrong institutions that are being put on trial here this afternoon. now, let me start by making some admissions about some the mistakes that were made by wall street. we were all angry about what happened in 2008 and 2009 and the massive losses. we're all angry at the excesses of wall street, the -- i'll acknowledge the fact that mr. frank made that there was excessive pay to ceos, that there were gaudy parties held by many of the members of wall street, that there were criminals and crooks like bernie madoff. by the way, they are in jail where they belong. but i think it's important to understand that wall street plays an inc
strikes against the united states. .. >> now you've got in close proximity, hundreds of miles away in some cases, with supersonic jets, in bases that may be vulnerable, small countries where even a small number of nuclear weapons can obliterate them. there was no hard line in 1962, that was bad enough, but when the soviets wanted to send a message to moscow, they gave it to western union and hoped the kid didn't stop to see his girlfriend on the way to the office. [laughter] it was very much a catcher's catch can, and if you have four or five people with nuclear weapons, all worried, no mar gyp for error, it's scary to say the least. ultimately, the only resolution is to stop iran from getting nuclear weapons, and a rev -- revolutionary state does not honor, and you need regime change brought about from within, get positive regime change, but the lesson out of this,ed broader lesson is revolutionary power, you can't negotiate away revolutionary power position. you have to defeat them. in 1962, though, we saw the consequence of miscalculation, and you can easily have one here so that war ma
people especially in the united states are saying no, thest a matter of free expression. the president of one of those groups was on cnn this morning. >> the only kind of hate speech that is illegal in the united states is when it incites imminent lawlessness and i think google is correct that the video in question did not meet that standard. >> google, which owns youtube, constantly having to make subjective decisions about what videos are okay. >> interesting. but this ist over because the white house has been asked to weigh in on this as well. >> the extent was asking youtube to take another look at it and then they said no, we're not going to do it. what you do have all the time, this is what's so fascinating about the way technology is changing the world. there are so many difficult decisions youtube has to face. for example, they say they don't all allow gory vooid, violent video, then you get these videos out of syria that show gore and violence. what we found is a youtube official who gave a talk a few years ago who said there's something they take a look at. to see whether a v
. this is spread throughout the united states from places like los angeles to providence, rhode island. it's a culture of corruption it seems that even the executive leadership, they knew about this sh didn't report it and kept the people on the boy scouts from tell the parents about it. >> so, that's revealed in the documentation? how was that discovered or alleged that officials knew about it then failed to report it? >> some of these documents the "l.a. times" got their hands on, we asked the boy scouts of america how they got them. they didn't want to talk about that. these are people blacklisted from volunteering with the boy scouts and in the correspondence back and forth between the leadership and people that were allegedly abusing these children, it showed they knew about these cases, covered them up and went so far as to hide the cases from the parents and law enforcement. they didn't report these cases. 80% were not reported to law enforcement. >> so, a cover up also leads one to think that potentially, those who are accused of participating in this kind of behavior, they have al

. so long as i am commander in chief, the united states will never tolerate efforts to harm our fellow americans. >> some say that tuesday's attack was planned. >> it was deliberate. i was given enough details of this by witnesses. >> they have no evidence that the attack was premeditated. but the scene of the first protest gives hope that other demonstrations will follow suit. >> that here at home, it has been nearly three weeks since the maryland teenager was found shot to death in her bedroom. police are stepping up their efforts to track down her killer. amber stanley was killed on august 22 inside her kettering home. so far, police have not been able to find out who committed the shocking crime. yesterday morning, federal officers visited the marlborough shopping officecenter. >> we're doing what we need to do to make sure this comes to a close. somebody saw something. >> there is a $25,000 reward being offered for information that leads to unrest. >> the man accused of murdering a catholic university graduate student in 2010 was found guilty of murder this week. eric forman was 1

time we saw the arab spring, but the other history. we were actually importing in the united states, 16, 17 million barrels of oil and we're down to 9 million barrels and we now actually export petroleum and you know, diesel fuel and other things to other countries. we're not in the same position and i don't think it's analogous to take this and extrapolate this over 18 months of the arab spring. >> all i'm saying, you just can't say the threat level is zero. it has to be something. that's why we've seen the spike in the last few days this past week in oil prices. >> and todd, it's not necessarily what the protesters want, is to give the government more revenue. >> you know, you've got that right. and i don't think that's smart, but look, the anti-american sentiment is right there. they hate us, always hated us and this is going to move forward. the gas prices are going through the roof as it is, guys, we're already at record high level right now. you can talk about supply and demand all the you want. once you start cutting off the supply, guys, eventually the numbers crisscross and gas
. as long as the united states doesn't look like it understands the menace it is confronting and is not prepared to take necessary steps i think the terrorists and the radicals will simply be emboldened and, therefore the threat is not a matter of a week or two, it is now a sustained political change in the region. the arab spring has not brought a flowering of democracy as some believed, erroneously in my view, it brought a wave of religious extremism to power in country after country. >> eric: and the administration believes that will continue? do you think the president and the administration did enough in the transition to democracy against the islamists? to try and stop the arab spring from becoming a nightmare? >> well, it was never a transition to democracy. that is the basic point. democracy, you can't use one word to express fully the importance of the culture of a liberal, open society. democracy is not one election and one vote. it is not even just counting votes, you could have a free and fair election, in italy, where fascists take power and germany where nazis t

you call him having a conversation with the president of the united states. talk a bit about that conversation. >> well you know, i was actually here in new york. i had just been on that you and was in a limo on the way to the airport with cnn when i received a call that was a 404 area code. it was a plan to so i answered it and was congressman john lewis. when we finished talking i decided i should take my text messages because i couldn't keep my voice mail clear enough to keep getting messages so lo and behold there was a message from the white house saying the president was trying to reach me. so i called the number and they wanted to arrange the call, so it was so interesting these people in the media. the person who was in the car with me from cnn pulled out a camcorder and i said, you cannot take me while i am talking to the president, so i made her turn it off and put it away. [applause] so, he started out by saying you are a hard person to reach. well everyone knew i had been with cnn all week. but anyway, he started out and you know they would be calling me about a p

and leadership throughout the middle east that is morphing into this rage against the united states. so i think it is here. .i think from a political point of view, i think this is an area of strength for president obama that they thought could be put away as there was more of a focus on the economy. now, this question of american policy, accusations of american weakness in the middle east, all of those things are in play. and here comes those presidential debates to hash all that out. >> and governor romney has challenged the president's leadership in the middle east after the libya attack, trying to po will i ticipoliticize it. has it gone beyond the debate? >> well, we don't know yet. the reality is that president obama would be perhaps more of the defensive if it were not for governor romney getting so many criticisms for his statements this week criticizing the president even before the facts were not known and in the immediate wake of argue ambassador in libya. >> the republicans are not backing up. some have drawn parallels in the iranian hostage crisis under jimmy carter. is that a fair
against the united states. i think it is here. and from a pure political point of view, this is an area of strength for president obama that they thought could essentially be put away as there's more after focus on the economy and contrasting president obama with governor romney. now this question of american policy, accusations of american weakness in the middle east, all of those things are in play and here come those presidential debates to really hash all that out. >> and governor romney has challenged the president's leadership in the middle east after the libya attack trying to politicize. has it resonated beyond the republican base? >> well, we don't know yet. we'll test that out over time as we look at polling and as these two debate one another. the reality is that president obama would be perhaps more on the defensive if it were not for governor romney getting so much criticism for his statements this week criticizing the president even before all the facts were known and in the immediate wake of the death of our ambassador in libya, chris stevens. >> the republicans are not b
back the president of the united states, is to? former new hampshire governor. well bin bernanke's announcement was about stimulating the economy, it was also about stimulating the president's poll numbers. the governor does not think that this will have the desired effect. governor, this is a fairly blatant move with little more than 50 days to go until the election. it really could have waited. why do you think it happened the way it did? >> i am not sure if it was overt or just the psychological pressure on the back that told him to do it now, but -- neil: why do it now? you would do that now? >> no. if he was going to do it he should have done it for five months ago. obviously it was not appropriate then. it is probably -- it is a problem now. look. what he has done is not a qe3. it is to the infinite. there is no timeframe. there is no limit to the amount. he just says, we are going to do 40 billion a month on mortgage-backed securities. then the next paragraph he says, and we might move to purchasing this is going to clobber, i believe, in the long run the dollar, and it is
the united states government had no involvement. >> reporter: experts say the administration must walk a fine line. >> it is a dangerous political dynamic on the ground that's fuelled by the fact that the arab spring has not quickly found a very clear direction. >> reporter: after initially taking hits for politicizing american deaths in libya, mitt romney softened his tone. >> well, this is politics. i'm not going to worry about the campaign. >> reporter: with romney trailing in polls on the question of foreign policy, running mate paul ryan continues to hammer the president. >> amid all these threats and dangers what we do not see is steady, consistent american leadership. >> reporter: today a close ally added more foreign policy pressure. in an interview to air on "meet the press" benjamin netanyahu the israeli prime minister insists mr. obama get tougher with iran over their nuclear program. >> iran is guided by a leadership with an unbelievable fanaticism. it is the same fanaticism you see stormg the ing the embassie today. do you want them to have nuclear weapons? >> reporter: with less
bernanke taking accountability for it. while the the president of the united states says none of this is my fault. we saw the photo of ben bernanke with the american flag and why don't we put him in the oval office and get the guy who is there out. because the guy with the federal reserve seems to be running the country. >> paul: bernanke seemed pained at the press conference seemed to say, the economy needs the help. i give bernanke the benefit of the doubt on the political motivation, but there's no question that this is a tacit admission that everything they've done for four years hasn't helped, and the economy still stinks. >> i felt a little sorry for him. what he said is no panacea, and it almost seems like he was apologizing and saying, look, i'm cornered. there's nothing else i can do because washington won't do it. >> paul: so we're going to try this. one i've been coloring liz's hair for years. but lately she's been coming in with less gray than usual. what's she up to?

to the 2008 financial collapse of the united states? >> i find a bizarre. i can't find that deregulation people are talking about. maybe they're talking about class stiegel in 2009. by the way, the clinton or bush of illustration. the fact is that no glass stiegel think was a problem during this recession. if you look at washington mutual, countrywide, in the bank, the banks that did all the more stuff, there were all pure commercial s&ls. there were not blasted banks. banks that of commercial banking and investment banking. and if you look on the wall street side, lehman brothers, that in to any commercial banking. it was a pure investment bank. the only back and think of the people might be referring to his citibank. they'll four times. dispel that every time. so i don't see anything to do with this crisis. this is a crisis that was created by government from the beginning to end, and i think -- i think a majority of economists are going to agree with this position once they look at the data. i think you could already determined. it's friday in fannie, subsidization of home mortgages,
the way this works is every law enforcement agency in the united states is required to report per a certain set of standards. and that is so you can compare crime in one area against crime in another area. so there's some specific guidelines on how to do that in this document called the uniform crime reporting handbook. this is produced by the f.b.i. we don't have a choice in how we report crime to the state and to the federal government. and so it's important to understand that as we step through that. step through this. so three of the key agencies involved are the california department of justice. that's the state level. the f.b.i. uniform crime reporting, that's the document i just showed you, that's the federal level. and the white house office of management and budget, who is kind of the group that defines how these categories will be established. so if you look at the racial designation by agency, all three of these agencies define race in the the exact same categories, other than the the white house has recently separated native hawaiian or pacific islander. those are two
